Method Man fans are loving his new collaboration with fellow New Yorker Marlon Craft, "Muggsy Bogues."

Craft and Meth dropped the track, the title of which serves as an ode to the notoriously short NBA legend of the same name, last week.

On his verse, Meth showcases the sort of lyrical prowess and clever world play that shot him to fame with rap group Wu-Tang Clan in the early nineties.

"You not a rider, you and your sponsors still got 'em bonkers / My coast is contra with D as hot as that block in Yonkers," he raps over the grimy beat, which was produced by Arbus and Moo Latte.

Meth continues: "Not a monster whose art of war is divide and conquer / But I wear a fitted like Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca."

Fans have been sharing plenty of love for Meth's verse and, more specifically, his ability to sound just as fresh as he did when he first broke onto the scene.

"No rapper has aged better than Meth. Dude sounds as young and fresh as he did in '93," commented one fan under the track's music video on YouTube.

Another wrote: "Method Man aging like fucking fine wine out here man."

There has been a lot of praise for Craft, too.

"Marlon killed it," commented one fan, while another wrote: "Marlon I'm so proud you. Nobody deserves it more. Please bring back real hip-hop."

Some fans even suggested the two should release a joint project so good is their dynamic. "Y'all need to do an album together!" commented one fan. "Flows just right."
